Renting out my Polish apartment, while residing outside EU - where do I pay tax on rental income?

Hi, I own an apartment in Poland.

I have a few questions I was hoping some of you may be help with.

1. I would like to rent out the apartment, because I would like to move out to a non-EU country and reside there long-term.
Which country should I pay the rental income tax to?
In principle, it should be the tax residence country (the non-EU where I would spend more than 6M/year), but is Polish tax office going to chase me anyway?

2. Will I still be liable to pay the property tax in Poland? Would the Polish tax office be able to contact me in the non-EU country to let me know how much I should pay?

3. What if I would like to sell the apartment, while my tax residence is already in the non-EU country?
Should I pay the property sale tax to Poland or the other country?

Thank you!

1.depends which country you are in
2. Yes - should be paid in Poland
3. Yes - should be paid in Poland, and if it is no longer your main residence there will be other tax issues

thanks.

3. what other tax issues do you have in mind?

What would you see as the best course of action?
keep on renting through an agency or just sell it? I would prefer keeping it because I think it's a good investment, but if it's going to cause complicated tax issues later on (me not residing in Poland long-term), I guess selling outright is better?

Elliot, Just curious what your native country is.

If you want to keep it then that is the best course. Even if you get taxed it will still generate plenty of cash.

Other tax issues are capital gains tax (19 percent of any profit from selling the flat) and inheritance taxes - too complicted to explain here. Ask an accountant if you are really bothered
